if you get a device approved first in germany, and you begin to sell in that market, you're going to produce it near where you're going to sell it. rather than being based in our country, indiana, massachusetts, other states, they'll open the facility in germany and export those products from europe into the united states instead of the way it is today, this is one of the few industry where is we make things here and export them abroad. we don't want to harm our global competitiveness. >> steve: senator, a moment ago you were talk being how you were hopeful members of your democratic party before we hit the fiscal cliff, will change their mind. remember, it was members of your party that drew up completely the obamacare legislation. if you're going to blame somebody for it, it's them. >> steve, it's a fair point that it's in the law. now, there are a lot of good things and bad things in the law. i'm convinced that people didn't really understand what the impact of this was going to be. now that that's out there, i think there will be a willingness to not point blame, but instead, say okay.
